Is it the challenge of pursuing the goal or is it achieving the goal that’s the exciting part?
I wrote on my Instagram that I dream, stumble and pursue. I felt that I stumbled a little bit the past 7 days. Well, I quite literally stumbled, but not just that. I have had some issues, that I’m not sure I want to share with the whole world, that didn’t set me up for the perfect weekend. But everything can happen and when I put on my race mood I’m racing.
Monday, we packed all our things and began the travel to the Czech Republic. Or more specific we drove to Nove Mesto na Morave! One of the favourite race venues for most riders. I think this place just makes us all happy because it’s a mountainbikers dream; forest, trails and roads. I’m excited and happy to spend the week here. We stay in an old charming farm and so far, the sun is shining. Sounds idyllic right? Haha.
These days I’m trying to find a good training rhythm and also switch off a bit. If I’m thinking about racing for 5 days before the race itself, I might lose all the air in the ballon before we even start. And I need air!
Thanks for reading. See you next week.
Starting from where I left off, my old lady of a car survived the trip to the mountains of Andorra. Required quite a lot of first gear pushing, including one time to the police station, because I apparently parked illegally. Who knew? Well, they knew... Nevertheless, I got my car back!
And aaanyway, I didn’t need it, as I was there for a cycling ‘mini’ training camp
(p.s the police station part is not my proudest moment...).
As I'm writing this I'm chilling in my sofa. I'm supposed to pack and do some grocery shopping. But the clothes I just washed and hang to dry is all wet again, because it started to rain, so that's just great. Plus to go grocery shopping you need to get dressed. And who like to wear pants anyway? Not even talking about bras. Dah, okay okay, I stop writing and I will go.
Reflect what you desire, become what you respect
